We are going to be on the big island before we come back to Kauai and stay at Lawai Beach. I am going to the Big island in between stays in Kauai.. I will have 4 nights at the big island and since the transfers back and forth from Kauai to BI kill a bit of time we are trying to decide on our return flight. We will be arriving at BI on Tues 26th supposedly at 10:38.. need to get bags, rent car then staying in Volcano village.. 2 nights then Thurs mid day drive to Kona and stay in that area two nights.
The day we return we have a choice of leaving on a 2PM flightto arrive Kauai about 4:30, get bags, rent car again, and drive to Lawai Beach.. or taking a later flight --- having more of the day in BI but getting in later at Kawai
With dropping off and getting car, picking up bags ect .. real time is leaving BI around 12 and then getting to the resort around 6- 6:30 vrs later flight leaving BI around 2 (for 4PM flt) and getting into Lawai around 8PM
Here is my question.. is that going to be a problem with getting a decent room? I know the later one gets in the less options one has. We are going late May so not height of the season but beginning.
It would be nice to have more of the day in BI but if it means getting a noisy room where we cannot sleep (we are very light sleepers) we will both be very unhappy so I would in that case rather lose the time on BI.. Any advice?

I don't think we're ignoring you it's just that you've answered your own question. That getting to the resort earlier will give you an earlier assignment of a unit rather than later. Arriving later would tend to give you a less desirable unit because anyone arriving before you who is unhappy with their unit will ask to see other ones. No one knows any way around that.:wall:
